Our "escape" was a trip to Angouleme and I took a few photos along the way. Most were not very good as we had an ever-changing sky from too dark to white clouds, or, I kept getting a reflection from the windscreen. Whatever, I just thought they would make a change from the garden. We had an appointment at 18h15, so we also had to carry signed certificates because of curfew hours, it would be impossible to get home before 19h00.
We hit a traffic jam nearing the centre of Angouleme. This was taken in St Cybard, Angouleme centre is at the top of the hill.
